The first, AN 240, describes how a BMG LABTECH customer used his PHERAstar to design a FRET-based assay to create a screen for inhibitors of a bacterial protein. The bacterial protein is involved in producing the bacterial cell wall and is therefore essential for many bacteria to survive. Therefore inhibitors of this protein could represent novel antibacterial drugs.
